Kylian Mbappé says goodbye to PSG with the French Cup and promises announcements about his future

Inspired in attack and composed in defense, Paris Saint-Germain beat Lyon (2-1) to win the French Cup on Saturday at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy. The pre-match è was punctuated by incidents between fans of the two clubs at a highway toll booth. During the clashes a bus è was burned, twenty supporters and eight police officers were injured.

In Villeneuve-d'Ascq, on the outskirts of Lille, the match è was played in a hot atmosphere, but no incidents occurred. On the field, the capital club raised this trophy for the 15th time. A success that allows Psg to close well the first year of the Luis Enrique era, marked by the French league title, an elimination in the Champions League semifinals against Borussia Dortmund and a consummated divorce with its star Kylian Mbappé.

In the last game with PSG, the No. 7 tried, in vain, to get on the scoresheet. Sometimes nervous as certain interactions with teammates showed, Mbappé failed in his quest for the goal, but not in his quest for the trophy, won for the fourth time with PSG.

È it was his strike partner Ousmane Dembé who broke the balance on 22'with a header; then he provided the second goal with a delightful cross to Fabian Ruiz (34'). Lyon è managed to halve the disadvantage thanks to Irish central defender Jake O'Brien (55'), taking advantage of the Parisians’ infamous weakness on corner kicks. Pierre Sage’s players then pushed on for a quarter of an hour, without, however, being able to equalize.

Mbappé promised that his next destination will be announced "probably in a few days". More about his own future he did not concede. "I leave with my head held high, with emotion and nostalgia", said the number 7, expected by Real Madrid, after seven years in Paris. "There's nothing better than closing with a trophy, " a very good feeling", he added at the press conference. "What I had here I won&#39t find anywhere else, although there will also be magical things".
